Coming undone
In this world of love and hate
You have opened my eyes to see
Breathing new life into me
Like an ocean breeze you calm my soul
Caress me with your senses
Flowing like the river free
I long for you to touch my soft marble curves
Inhale my fears
Wipe away my tears
Your words so comforting in my ears
Come play with me in the sand box called life
Take a slice with your knife
Blood runs hot
Through hearts that bleed
I am stained by you
As you forever have touched my soul
Intoxicate me
I shall now close my eyes
Say goodnight to the sweet path of destiny

This was wonderfully profound Om..I loved it...read it first on Tenz's and was hoping you would post here so I could comment. I liked every line so can't really quote them...pondering the wisdoms in this one now tho *smile.

And Tralfamador wept

Kurt Vonnegut 1922 - 2007...

“Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It’s round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you’ve got about a hundred years here. There’s only one rule that I know of, babies — ‘God damn it, you’ve got to be kind.’ ”

Should have made clearer:

“Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It’s round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you’ve got about a hundred years here. There’s only one rule that I know of, babies — ‘God damn it, you’ve got to be kind.’ ”
I stole from sumbuddy's blog. Of course, HE stole the Vonnegut quote, first. . . .

xox, all

Why is Your face pressed against the window

looping lines of thought , a rope to toss or tighten
a dream that never lets you see its face
energy from entropy , expelled to enlighten
the gun explodes, the deaf stand in their place

tell me once again of what makes you real
make me feel the power of touch and taste
doing just to line your nest, a motive to conceal
nobility the victim if hurry turns to haste

schools for senses never seem to make it to the scene
as spirits take the beating of the drone
fear of falling capsulized, never saying what you mean
cursed to our skin's limits, .. we crawl alone

errr...I used ramble. It's a neat word, implying much. I try not to use too many cliches, but I've been packed full of them, being an avid reader and product of sixties advertising.... oops, avid reader is a cliche... See, there goes another one....I miss you here, Om. You're one of the standards I measure myself against...

the pervert

spring dances
precocious lolita
the old man lays
a brumous finger
lecherous blasphemy
against her swelling breast

Om, the poem is about winter (Humbert), and spring (Lolita)....spring is always about swell, and bud...brumous means "wintery, or foggy".....

However, in the book Lolita was actually cozy to Humberts advances....the song 'Don't stand so close to me' by The Police made reference to the book with the lines "I start to shake and cough/just like that old man in/that book by Nabokov"

There was a movie directed byu Stanley Kubric with James Mason and Sue Lyons....she was fourteen at the time. She did a great job, but the subject matter and the film were very controversial.

Come play with us in the new thread. You get to use big words..... I am currently searching for "C", I've used abstruse and brumous...

I reserve the right to think very highly of you and your talents...and you can't do a thing to stop me....

well, glad it spoke to you....I'm sure I'm speaking for many others, too...

for some reason I thought you might like this....

Sundae

with whipped cream on the side
shapeless
and past our expiration date
we regard each other
oh, you were a sight once
with your stiff peaks, nut sprinkles
and cherry garnish
such a grand girl
that you delighted
even in your decline

good to see you again!


yellow beak

I love the starlings
because
they are common
they talk with yellow beaks
and flutter in the tall grass
and swagger about proudly
unaware
that they are common

I really enjoyed that Ommie....thanks! How did you know I like picking better than strumming? For that reason I've always been partial to banjo and mandolin....

Maybe for my birthday I'll buy myself that lap harp I've been eyeing. I have a melody I made up for this lullaby poem I wrote, now I just have to pick it out....(not that I know any musical notes...) I was just thrilled I made it up, for years I literally prayed that I would invent just one original melody, since I'm not gifted in that direction....my grandkids are pretty much too old for a lullaby, but maybe their kids...

wail

wail
vocalize your grief
to keen against the sky
sometimes
we touch the animal
that howls demanding why
wail
and rage against the loss
the memory
held reverently
and cherished at all cost
wail
at the injustice
that you are left behind
with fraying ends
unraveling
your ties of heart and mind
wail
nevermind
the shock of others
you, in your grief
remind
a foreboding tickle
of grief as yet unknown
a cold subconscious prickle

for some elements or substances at some pressures material may pass directly from solid to the gaseous state. This can occur if the atmospheric pressure exerted on the substance is too low to stop the molecules from escaping from the solid state.

sublimation

the beauty most sublime
begins within
ripening with time
until the outer rind
grows parchment thin
and all the weathered cracks
and seams and spots
reveal the source
soul of light
that yearns to reunite
with bouyant kin
radiant and yang
illuminating yin
to drop the shell of skin
a role
and recognize the whole
weightless
ecstatic flight
cosmic again

My uncomfortable chair.
Posted: 6/17/2008 7:52:53 PM
hey, heard you wanted to be a shipbuilder.....

Artist: Elvis Costello
Album: Punch The Clock
Title: Shipbuilding

Is it worth it
A new winter coat and shoes for the wife
And a bicycle on the boy's birthday
It's just a rumour that was spread around town
By the women and children
Soon we'll be shipbuilding
Well i ask you
The boy said 'dad they're going to take me to task
But i'll be back by christmas'
It's just a rumour that was spread around town
Somebody said that someone got filled in
For saying that people get killed in
The result of this shipbuilding
With all the will in the world
Diving for dear life
When we could be diving for pearls
It's just a rumour that was spread around town
A telegram or a picture postcard
Within weeks they'll be re-opening the shipyards
And notifying the next of kin
Once again
It's all we're skilled in
We will be shipbuilding
With all the will in the world
Diving for dear life
When we could be diving for pearls

PS: This song is exquisite to hear.....

Elvis is one of my favorites because of the lyrics, and the cool jazzy voice with the lush instrumentals.....some of his best lyrics are "Everyday I write the Book" very clever....and "Watching the Detectives"......

Then again, I'm one of the people who knows the lyrics to songs, and gets annoyed when performers screw them up too much....

*sigh* awesome Om...

I wish I could get back to the spare writing I love so much, but my mind is tangled with jangles....at least you give me something to aspire to....

black hats

We have met the enemy, and he is us
there's no serenity
preemptive strike, carnivorous
he defiles our constitution with impunity
we long again to put the white hat on
show brotherhood and community
perhaps new leadership will spawn
an opportunity for global unity

Om, much as I would like to claim that third handed quote, it wasn't mine...I was following post 4670 in the Stanzas thread, by Revl Dave.

The original quote is a bit surprising, as I thought it was Winston Churchill or something...but it's a comic strip, and one of my all time favorites....

"We has met the enemy, and he is us!"
by Walt Kelly, in Pogo comic strip

Now I've gone and finished all my Kay Scarpetta and need to make another library run...and my Dean Koontz is in my locker at work....I may actually have to watch a movie tonite...

Today
It was the thousand screaming virgins


lol, they're just trying to release tension....I've always wondered what gets into girls at that age....they're voracious attention getters, even if the attention is negative. Even if they used to be sensible girls. Suddenly they scream, they talk loudly, they stretch languidly....

Hey babe, where'd ya go?

someday
perhaps
he will "see" me
my words will seem
written for him

they are

and he will visit
my place
and his mind
will talk to me
and we will roll
on paper sheets
burning daylight
